About Ladislao Nocon Diwa

Ladislao Diwa was a Filipino patriot who was among the founders of the Katipunan that initiated the Philippine Revolution against Spain in 1896.

He worked as a curial del juzgado in Quiapo (1892) and an escribano for the province of Pampanga (1893-1896). He was a Freemason under the Taliba Lodge and was a member of La Liga Filipina (“Baguio”). He was imprisoned in Fort Santiago from 1896 to 1897.
